Federal Register Notice on Cyber Gap Data Collection

The April 21 Federal Register contains a request for comment on a DHS data collection effort to identify gaps in cyber security initiatives.

Included as part of the FY 10 DHS appropriations measure, DHS “…in cooperation with FEMA and relevant stakeholders, shall develop the necessary tools for all levels of government to complete a cyber network security assessment so that a full measure of gaps and capabilities can be completed. The NCSR will be conducted via the US–CERT Secure Portal. The assessment stakeholders will be states and large urban areas. The NCSR is a voluntary self-assessment designed to measure cybersecurity preparedness and resilience.”

Comments are encouraged and will be accepted until June 20, 2011.
